About

The Backpack Ministry at Midtowne Church provides meals to school age children, on weekends and holidays, who would otherwise go without.

The “kid-friendly” ready-to-eat food is delivered to participating schools at no cost to the child’s family or the school. Through program coordinators, the food is distributed to students who display educational, physical, or emotional problems at school due to hunger at home

The Backpack Ministry feeds OVER 300 children each week from 10 local schools. Most of the children receive 4 main meals, 2 breakfast items, and 4 snacks each Friday for the weekend. This equates to 1,300 main meals, 650 breakfast items, and 1,300 snack items per week.For information on how you can SERVE, contact Tanya here.
